Like I said before, if this little baby was on the timeline that Caroline was on, she would be here. We are glad she is happy where she is and packin' on some more ounces. I am very nervous for labor because I didn't have any time to think about it last time! Here is how it went with Caroline for those of you that don't know.
I had just arrived back from lunch and went back to the operating room I was working in that day. I was helping with a heart surgery and was trying to be very attentive. Well, that's embarrassing I thought...hmmm, I must have peed my pants a little. This wasn't a big surprise as sneezing and pregnancy brings on little problems like that. I continued on helping out with the case. Then I had a feeling to page my doctor, which I did. Fifteen minutes went by...no response. So, I called Labor and Delivery and said, "Hi, this is really dumb, but I am 36 weeks along and I know I just peed my pants, but thought I should call to make sure I didn't need to do anything. I'm not having any contractions."
They responded and said, "Looks like you're done. Come in to the hospital."
Me: "I am here."
L&D: "Call your husband."
Me: "He is here, we work in the operating room."
L&D: "See you in a minute."
I voice-paged Adam with a shaky voice that was trying to hold back all the emotion that was flooding in. I was whisked away upstairs and when it was confirmed my water had broken, we were nervous but so excited.
So, as I went to bed last night I thought, this could be it. I am sure I will be thinking that everyday now. I do love this anticipation. A family of four, that has a sweet little ring to it.
